Palma’s beautiful cathedral – a magnet for tourists staying in Mallorca’s capital

I don’t usually publish posts from outside sources on this blog, but I’ve been contacted by Spain-Holiday.com about a free webinar they are offering on Thursday, March 22nd, at 12 noon CET. It sounds likely to be informative and of interest to holiday rental owners and agents, Airbnb hosts, and property investors – affected by the latest legal changes relating to holiday rental properties in the Balearic Islands.

If you visited Mallorca last summer, you were probably aware that – like the rest of Spain – the island had record-breaking numbers of visitors. Whilst that sounds positive for a country that relies on tourism, the huge number of tourists and growth in demand for self-catering accommodation caused problems for local residents – particularly those looking for long-term property rentals in Mallorca’s capital, Palma.

The word from Spain-Holiday.com

As a result, the local government has introduced and implemented several new laws to limit tourism and resolve the problem of “over tourism” on the Balearic Islands, with further proposed measures. These changes impact both the hotel industry as well as self-catering accommodation, which represent 84.2% and 15.4% of tourism to the islands, respectively.

Spain-Holiday.com is hosting a FREE webinar on the Legal Changes Affecting Holiday Rentals in the Balearic Islands.

The 30-minute presentation, followed by a 15-minute Q&A session, is aimed at holiday rental property owners, holiday rental agents, Airbnb hosts and property investors in the Balearic Islands of Mallorca, Ibiza, Menorca and Formentera.

Topics to be covered include:

• Current legal requirements for holiday rental properties
• Tourist rezoning areas
• Tax and insurance obligations
• Looking ahead: Proposed measures for a sustainable future in tourism

  1. As a matter of fact, these “record-breaking numbers of visitors” are causing problems everywhere, and laws must change consequently, to avoid tourism and touristic locations to collapse under the weight of their “popularity”!

    • You’re right, Sid. It is happening everywhere. I saw some shocking images of Venice recently, ‘under siege’ by visitors and cruise-ship passengers. Looked very different from when I made my one visit there around 20 years ago…

      Ciao, Jan

  2. Hi Jan, thank you so much for sharing the news of the webinar. We hope people find it useful.

    In response to Sid’s post above, the laws relating to tourism and holiday rental licences for self catering accommodation are set at a regional level so each region has a different law. In this webinar, we are covering the laws in the Balearic Islands only but there are plans for other webinars to cover other areas of interest.
